The 2018 edition of the Photobook Festival explores the theme Borders and Boundaries.
The theme Borders and Boundaries is intended as a critical response to the increasing use of border controls and the increased social and economic inequalities which exemplify boundary making.
A series of six talks on Sept 28 and 29 will explore the uses of the photobook as an exhibition form across the issues and challenges of decolonisation, urbanisation and gentrification, migration and legacies of conflict. Invited speakers are Julia Tedroff, Jueno Je Kim, Daniel Jewesbury, Johan Öberg, Mary Coble, and Sanjin Pejkovic and guest photographers are Katarina Despotovic, Magnus Sundberg, Annica Karlsson Rixon, Michelle Eistrup, Igor Čoko and Nina Manglanayagam.
The talk series is hosted at the Hasselblad Center which will also include an exhibition of photobooks selected via open call and in partnership with this years partners:
Matthew Carson, Emelie Dunne and Fred Ritchin from ICP (New York), Autograph Association of Black Photographers (London), Membrana (Slovenia), Polish Paradise (Poland), Belfast Exposed (Northern Ireland), The Swedish Photobook Award (SFF), Swedish Book Art (National Library) and the Nordic Dummy Award (Oslo).
We look forward to seeing you there !
